Arrival in Dublin!

First, the layover at JFK was filled with catching up and horror stories of medical school from Bryan. Red-eye airplane flights are pretty terrible. After minutes of glorious tossing and turning sleep, we all awake around 3am (800 Ireland time) to an outstanding breakfast of just plain yogurt. We eagerly await the countdown on the tv screen and …

A pint of Bushmills anyone?

... amazing. He had the entire bar singing along, and dancing. He took in some requests (some Korean looking guy, claiming he was from Sweden, asked for ABBA..David, the musician, didn't wanna do it, but reluctantly did. And as soon as he started playing, the Swedish guy walks out of the pub. I swear, he had the entire place roaring. Who does that? Seriously? Who asks for an ABBA song at an Irish pub and then, as soon as it starts playing, walks out of the ...

Saturday - Dublin

A travel blog entry by miura09


... our final night. It's close to the airport so when we catch our flight to Cologne at 4am we won't miss a train etc. I read my devotional and I've been praying asking God to pay my debt to Nadzha back and to provide money for accommodation, food, transportation and expenses. At first the message I got was to trust God. I really am trusting Him to pull through and I pray for break through on a daily basis. The next message I received was to plan. I understood it. I ...

... in Ireland, Mary Costello & Claire Kilroy.

-We're right near Temple Bar so we've seen that quite a bit. Like a lot. And Grafton St shopping. A lot. (Though I've only been window shopping)

The USIT people have really been keeping us busy every night with something to do or see. This will be our first free weekend for travel but they didn't let us know early enough so some of us are just going to ...

... which is gorgeous. And we are staying right near Christs cathedral which is nice as well. Kristen didn't pack pants....dumb decision, it's freezing. So we also found some good shopping on grafton street and probably every mall in Dublin. Including an h&m, forever 21, and tk max instead of tj max. Tomorrow we are going to go to see a more green area of Ireland for a day trip possibly malahide ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Harcourt Hotel Dublin

    Harcourt hotel-mostly a gem


    I do a lot of traveling back and forth between the USA and Ireland as I am currently completing my Ph.D. up in Belfast. As my flights are often early in the morning, I go to dublin to stay overnight, rest and start fresh in the morning. I have stayed at the Harcourt more 15 times over the past two years. I have always been quite pleased with the pleasant staff, the quality of accomodation, the service and especially the traditional music nightly in the dinner room. Raphy and his friends are just fabulous to listen to over a cool drink. The nightclub is next door and often hosts a number of brilliant Irish bands. (I saw the Dubliners there about a year ago. ) You are a short walk away from Grafton Street, St. Stephen's Green, great shopping and the Airbus to the Dublin Airport. I must say that I have been quite pleased with my experiences at the Harcourt. There was one time when my fella came over from the US to visit. (that's always the time something goes wrong though. I was bragging about how nice the Harcourt was and our room had numberous things wrong with it. (ie-the tv remote didn't work, a burnt out light bulb, a broken hair dryer) but all we had to do was ring down to the desk and these things were quickly corrected. The place is clean and the staff pleasant and they leave out a couple of complimentary bath accessories in case you forget something. The last couple of times I was down there was street work going on out front, but the end result will be a Dublin Tram (well worth the effort). Without reserve, I would reccomend this hotel as a quality hotel within the travel concious budget.

    Hotel was great


    Many thanx to the Harcourt Hotel for providing my 7 friends and I with excellent service and accomodation.. the meals were excellent.. rooms (friends and I slept in dorm with 5 bunk beds!!) were great..very clean and all amenties you would require.. staff were all very friendly and helpful with any queries.. friends and I will definatley be heading across the Irish Sea to Dublin in very near future and hopefully get staying in the Harcourt Hotel again.. thanx again from the Ayrshire girlies.. Jacqui, Linda, Shirley, Adele, Sharon, Marissa, Gillian and last but definately not least Kelly.. see you soon..!!!

    Fantastic place!!


    This hotel was brilliant the rooms were lovely with comfortable beds, the bar and club joined onto the hotel were a great night out allowing you to stay in the same building as your bed! The barstaff were all friendly and helpful advising places to eat out in the city. Very enjoyable stay

    Horrible Hotel


    This hotel is a joke. The street is torn up outside the hotel and there is no parking at all. The outside noise at night prevents sleeping. The staff is not at all helpful and the rooms are marginal. Stay away!

    Harcourt-No way!


    Stayed at this hotel in April 2003 and found noisy and worn. Major street excavation directly in front the hotel was bad. Pub in hotel noisy and drunken guests compound the problems. The staff was not accomodating. Beds were tiny and rooms old and worn. Stay away from this hotel.

    Its not bad


    The Harcourt was exactly what we were looking for : affordable with a good location. The rooms are on the small side, and if you are on the first floor, the music from the downstairs pub may keep you awake at night.

    There is a fun disco in the basement!

    Think these other reviews are very unfair....


    On a recent trip to Dublin i was very impreseed with the harcourt hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful, the rooms were clean and bright. For the money what do you want?Overall a very good hotel, try staying at Jurys Custom Quay because that is bad!

    Very Disappointing


    Very disappointing. My wife booked on line and the room we got almost needed the beds moved before you could open the door. Breakfast was medium but the music was good. Maybe they should close the hotel and just keep the pub

    No breakfast, cold cod dinner, no sleep


    We booked on line. After arrival, we were told our rates were too cheap to include breakfast. The cod we ordered for the evening meal came lukewarm on cold plates. (Sorry, maybe next door can satisfy you.) The lovely large room with fireplace was connecting to another guest room and near the entry doors, cutting in to quiet time and sleep. The reading lights over one 'Murphy' bed did not work. Some ceiling lights were missing or dangling. The beds were comfortable. There was lots of hot water and good water pressure. TV reception was fuzzy.

    No sleep


    If it's the ability to sleep you look for when choosing a hotel then I would advise against this one. We chose this hotel as it was economical and the rooms were of a reasonable standard, however our stay there was a stressful one. Noise from industrial extractor fans, very late stag nights and inconsiderate, early rising, cleaning staff prevented any sleep. When approached reception were unresponsive, disorganised and even cheeky, suggesting that we should have specified in advance if we required a 'quiet room'. If you are considering a weekend in Dublin and want a room in which to sleep, then I would advise against the Harcourt Hotel.
